Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also hard to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with transport we gained. It is doable to transport a motorcycle or a moped without hussle, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some helpful tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that are likely to happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle using a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer specially dedicated for motorcycles or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this case you will need only 2 strapping belts. It's neccessary to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or elements that may possibly cut the belts and hinder your efforts. It's also feasible to transport a motorcycle in a truck. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorcycle standing safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned above. One thing that should be taken under consideration will be installing the side pads to prevent any damage to the insides of the car and other objects that will be transported just next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can help you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the car.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be enough to carry your motorbike. For example, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorbike and loading it in a van could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When listing your motorcycle on Clicktrans you can get  multiple great quotes from transport companies who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can adjust the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their cars. Thanks to that, shipment gets cheaper and more environmentally friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
